Fans have been asking for more articles from the early years, so here's one from New Musical Express, plus a pin-up from the first few weeks of Christie's career.

Dave Munden

R.I.P. Dave Munden, drummer with the Tremeloes who also sang lead vocal on the group's version of Yellow River, which the band originally decided to release as a single. They decided not to, and Christie was formed to record it. The rest is history.

Here's the original record sleeve for the Mexican release of Guantanamera. Read more about this unusual recording here.

It's almost 50 years ago that Yellow River topped the UK charts for three weeks; May 30, June 6 and June 13, 1970. The success of the record enabled Christie to be voted No 1 Group of the Year. Here's a recording made for a BBC broadcast.
